Excellent Upgrade to the LTH18538!
I own the LTH18538. It is the last model for 2012. It is one of the best tractors I have ever owned. Has a nice tight turning radius, very even cut, and a very comfortable ride. I set up my tractor with the Double Bagger and it's a great attachment. No raking left overs or anything of the sort.
FYI, the LTH 2038 is the same unit, just a little stronger engine. My tractor has the 18.5 HP Briggs. The new tractor has the 20 HP Briggs.
Note to those crying about the "cruise control" You really should pay attention to the site and videos as well as the documents that Husqvarna has on site. If you did, then you'd know that the Cruise Control is ONLY available on the models that have the foot pedal drive, not the fender lever. The Fender has it's own "Cruise Control" where the lever stays in place for you.

Not Quite as Advertised
Just received my new LTH2038. Runs well, comfortable ride and after one mowing I'm pleased. I purchased this machine based on spec's and features I found on Husqvarna's website however my machine seems to be missing both the Cruise Control feature as well as the Deck Wash connection so look closely before purchasing.

would not buy again
This is a great tractor, will get places a larger tractor would not, plenty of power, nice handling, great for smaller yards.
Would not buy again only because of customer support
